I seen this on the Betty Crocker website last week and I end of making it that day so I could bring it to work the next day. It was gone. It is so good, to me it taste just like the Andes Mint (which I love). This is a keeper. I LOVE THIS CAKE. And it's so pretty.
I made this for St. Patty's Day last year, and I can't wait to make it again for a party this year! Super easy and oh-so-delicious! (Just don't bring home the leftovers, or you'll be tempted to eat it all in one sitting!) I'd recommend using Mrs. Richardson's Hot Fudge (my favorite).
I like the idea, but I think it would be better with chocolate cake. It was a little dry and the mint overbearing. I'd use less mint extract in the cake batter.
